Shot yesterday (28th Aug) while at the beach with my family using my recently purchased Vivitar f2.8 28mm manual lens and polarising filter.
Realised it would fit this challenge when I got home!
A group of lads were skim boarding on the shore of quite a busy beach. Quite lucky to have captured this with nobody in the background!

Wonderful. I gave it an 8 at first, then came back to bump it up to 10.

Looks like fun, nice choice with the B/W... it would have been nice to get his whole reflection on the bottom half but maybe the clouds are more appealing.
